Harvey must get the Spirit of MINI prize as a driveshaft went and he ask the very nice AA man to tow him the last 7 miles to hang out until the AA lorry turned up

On the way home, 6 hours sleep and then off to Santa Pod for a gruelling weekend working on Ellis Motorsport twin turbo Pro Mod car...............can life get any better
Our other courtesy car gets Bilsteins- 03 April 2012
Our other dark silver courtesy car got some love last Friday with some new Bilstein B14 PSS coilovers, R56 front calipers Pagid discs and Performance Friction pads all around and Motul 660 brake fluid, contacting the floor was some Neuton 205 45 17 tyres, So whats the best thing to test all these new componets out ?

Answer; A How Fast session at Bedford Autodrome EVO magazine circuit, we did the 1 hour practice session on the Neutons and netted a 1.32.857 a 2.491 sec improvement, we decided to switch the front wheel & tyres to some 16 x7 Rota slipstreams and 195 50 16 Toyo 888's for the 2 flying laps, this netted us our fastest time of the day with a 1.32.263 a 3.085 sec improvement.........we believe that the car and old man Webster have some more left in there.

So now when you visit can try KW V1's or Bilsteins B14 PSS if both courtesy cars are on site.
